Analyzes the structure of clusters of two-dimensional particles interacting with a hard-core square-well pair potential to demonstrate how thermodynamic stability ceases to exist when the system approaches the Baxter's sticky limit. Differences in the dependence of the sizes and the radii of gyration; Action of cluster sizes of varying dimensions.

    The solvation of a particle in water, whether a ‘‘foreign’’ particle or a molecule of water, is expressed in terms of a non-hydrogen-bonding contribution to the pair potential and a contribution from hydrogen bonding. Only the latter depends on whether the water is H2O...

    Scaled particle theory is applied to the prediction of the thermodynamic properties of a system of identical hard spheres adsorbed onto another sphere of different diameter. The finite nature of the system requires modification of the usual boundary conditions on the contact correlation...

    A theory is developed for the deliquescence of small particles that incorporates the effects of surface phenomena on the deliquescence process. The theory is based on rudimentary surface thermodynamics since we are primarily interested in the orders of magnitude of the various effects. Applying...
